Case studies

The following case studies will be discussed:

Their task will be to suggest classification, assess the corrective action plans, timeframes, enforcement and communication.
  •  Review of an operator's application for a new AOC with special emphasis on the air operator's management system. The applicant intends to operate 2 Airbus A320 and 2 B737 operating in Europe. The application also contains specific approvals like LVO, PBN and RVSM.                                           This exercise is spread over the course dates, finishing (when time available) with filling out an AOC and the associated Operations Specification.

 

The exercises will be performed in groups of two to three people and the results alternatingly presented for discussions among all attendees.
